The other student, identified as Student B, was in Grade 12 and was 17 years old when the teacher had an “inappropriate personal relationship” with the student. A few weeks after graduation from student B, the teacher “gave alcohol to student B and initiated sexual intercourse,” said the decision.
Another decision on Tuesday barred a second BC high school teacher from teaching for 15 years. The teacher’s name and gender have not been revealed, and the school is not identified. The teacher, according to the decision, began to have sex with a student he had taught between grades 10 and 12.
The student – who is also anonymous – graduated last June and the teacher and student had sex in September. The decision says that the student “spent a lot of time with the teacher at school and also spent time with the teacher outside of school.”
The decision also indicates that the teacher had “boundary violations” with other students, who viewed the teacher more as a friend than an authority.
The teacher was dismissed and his certificate, obtained for the first time in 2014, was canceled. The teacher has agreed not to reapply for a new certificate for a period of 15 years.
